Results There were 57 patients with small bowel cancer, representing 0. Colorectal cancer diagnosis were 37 Out of 57 patients, 48 There were 10 The most frequent neoplasms were gastrointestinal stromal tumor in 24 patients The prevalence of duodenal adenocarcinoma was Obstruction was the complication in adenocarcinoma in Conclusion Primary small bowel cancers are usually diagnosed at advanced stages, and revealed by a local complication of the tumor.
Their surgical management in emergency setting is associated to significant morbidity and mortality rates. The diagnosis of these tumors is often delayed due to their nonspecific symptoms, usually being made during an acute complication of the disease.

The secondary objectives were to determine early morbidity and mortality associated with surgical resection, and to correlate the pathology of the tumor with its clinical picture. The selection criteria were duodenal, jejunal or ileal tumor; and histopathological colorectal cancer diagnosis proving the small bowel malignant neoplasm.
Continuous variables are expressed as mean ± standard deviation, and the categorical ones as number percent. Categorical variables were compared by the χ 2 tests. The probability of rejecting the null hypothesis statistical significance was set at 0.
DOI: Single tumor cells circulating in the blood stream can be considered a major step in depicting dissemination of primary tumors, an event of clinical relevance for prognosis, staging or therapy monitoring of cancer. The third leading cause of cancer death in men is colorectal cancer and the hematogenous spreading of primary tumor cells is one of the main events in metastasis of this type of cancer. Hidden in the myriad of circulating blood cells, tumor cells need both a sensitive and affordable detection technique. In addition, we found distinct accumulation of porphyrin depending on cancer type cutaneous melanoma versus colorectal cancer.
We also did an electronic search at the databases of the U. Only English language literature was selected for further analysis. Electronic and manual cross-referencing was used further to find more relevant sources.
The mean age for males was 58± We observed a mean interval from onset of symptoms to surgical treatment of 73 days, with 2.
